Around the 1st of Nov. last year, I was spent 3 days in ICU. My symptoms were excessive thirst, sever yeast infection, blurred vision, sweating, going to bathroom constantly, lost 14lbs, feeling faint, fruity smell, and I felt shaky. I tested + for ketones .My bs was over 350 and a1c was over 13. I had seen the doctor in Sept. for uti. which I had but none of the other symptoms above. She ran urine and blood test. Everything was normal at that time. Oh by the way I am 63 years old. They said I had type 1 diabetes. I have been doing a lot of reading up on type 1. I have also read about LADA/1.5. I have never had high bs in my life until my diagnosis in Nov. My question to you is do I have type 1 or LADA/1.5? I was put on insulin immediately and I use a pump.
